An Effective Switching Algorithm for Single Phase Matrix Converter in Induction Heating Applications
AbstractPrevalent converters for induction heating (IH) applications employ two-stage conversion for generating high-frequency magnetic field, namely, AC to DC and then DC to high-frequency AC (HFAC). This research embarks upon a direct conversion of utility AC to high frequency AC with the design of a single-phase matrix converter (SPMC) as a resonant converter using a modified switching technique for IH application. The efficacy of the proposed approach is validated through different attributes such as unity power factor, sinusoidal input current and low total harmonic distortion (THD). The developed prototype-embedded system has high pragmatic deployment potential owing to its cost effectiveness using Arduino mega 2560 and high voltage/current as well as low switching time IXRH40N120 insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT). Different results of the prototype-embedded system for IH application have been verified using Matlab Simulink environment to corroborate its efficacy. View Full-Text
